12 months=1 year! Happy 1st birthday Lexi!

12 months! How is it possible that you are over a year old? This post is late but we have been very busy this last week, so I am sure you will understand. I am going to do it a bit differently today!
How she went from this.....

 to this.... amazes me!!

Lexi, you are 19lbs 2 oz ( a week before your birthday)! You are still pretty small for your age, but I think you get it from me. You are wearing mainly 6-9 month clothing but some 12 month. Shoot, you even fit in some 6 months still! You are still in cloth diapers 99% of the time (1% was when we didn't have access to a washer!) You are on the second smallest setting on those still, so I think we definitely got our use out of them. You wear a size 3 shoe but can fit into size 4, they are just big. You still have gorgeous blue eyes but your hair is darkening up a whole bunch!

You have quite the personality and it shows more and more every day! You want what you want when you want it, and if you don't get your way we hear about it! You have such a little attitude,  you are definitely my diva! When you get mad you throw yourself backwards and just pitch a fit. I am trying to just let it run its stage, but it is hard!

You are really starting to learn, blossom, and understand. You grab your books and run to us to read them to you, you bring us your juice cup when it is empty, you open your puffs by yourself and put the lid back on! You are such a joy and so funny! When you see us laughing at you it makes you do whatever you were doing more! You have been signing alot this month, makes mama happy! You have started talking much more. You have a little phrase but we won't discuss it! You still say dad alot, rarely do you ever say mama anymore. You say num num num and click your tongue when we talk about food :) so cute! you love bananas! in the morning we give you the banana in half and you walk around the house watching tv and just eating your banana as happy as can be! And now you want your own apple which is so funny! We used to just give you bites of ours but now you throw a fit until we give you your own, ha! So we peel the skin and you walk around holding it in both hands chomping down! You makes us take bites as well! At least you share ;)Yesterday you had it in your carseat and you didn't make a peep!

You are sleeping much better, but still heading down around 8-9 and waking up at 7am at the latest. You are an early bird! Then you take a morning nap and definitely an afternoon nap, sometimes an extra nap in there. You are a big time mamas girl, you cry and cry and cry when I leave the room or anything! You remembered your nana and papa and they wanted you to stay the night and I said no so you cried so hard!

You clap all your hands all time, enjoy dancing, love giving high 5's, and laugh constantly! You are such a happy baby now! You are slowly beginning to become independent! You eat all big girl food and are almost completely off the bottle. You are about to get your nunu taken away. You are mainly walking but occasionally you will crawl. You are still a climber, but now it is worse, you use things to your advantage stacking them to reach what you want! You are very persistent, you don't give up until you have what you want.

You are a very loving little girl. All day long when I play with you you will go do your own thing and every minute or two you will walk on over and kiss me on the cheek. You literally don't go 5 mins all day without giving mama kisses! and when I am not laying and playing with you you blow them at me!! Such a sweet baby! 

You have been such a joy and every day is more and more fun! You are so serious and funny, it is priceless! We love you so very much and without you we would be so lost!! You will always be our baby girl, even when you have your own baby!
